The Top Ten

1 And Then There Was Silence - Blind Guardian

The best of 2002 without a doubt - christangrant

Yep, I agree - definitely #1.
Interesting fact: this song has so many tracks that it alone needed as much production time as the rest of the album (A Night at the Opera). It's composition is pretty complex and the song is over 14 minutes long.
Is has 3 studio versions but I prefer the re-recorded version of 2012, which is on the sample here. - Metal_Treasure

2 Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence - Dream Theater

A song that's over 40 Minutes - christangrant

3 Better in the Dark - Dio

One of Dio's best songs and Dio are best band ever so this gets number one spot for me. - metalwillneverdie

4 Billy Badass - Jackyl
5 Pit of Zombies - Cannibal Corpse
6 In the Shadow of Our Pale Companion - Agalloch
7 Deliverance - Opeth
8 Mother Puncher - Mastodon
9 Krwlng - Linkin Park

I know it's a remix but it's a very good remix it manages to turn one of their heaviest songs into a soft song - christangrant

10 ... and the Great Cold Death of the Earth - Agalloch

The Contenders

11 March of the Fire Ants - Mastodon
12 F**k the System - System of a Down

I like this song, vocals are so funny. - Metal_Treasure

16 Thoughtless - Korn
17 Here to Stay - Korn
